1. Eco-Friendly Yoga Mat

eco-friendly yoga mat

This yoga mat is made of non-toxic, odorless and harmless TPE material, which is friendly to the body and the environment. The perfect eco-friendly gift for everyone who loves Yoga, Pilates or other forms of fitness.

Eco-Friendly Gifts Review: “I decided to try yoga to combat the stagnation that comes from being trapped at home. My first mat was super thin and really hurt my wrists, this mat has a lot more support and is larger, making mandala yoga a lot easier, too! I was really pleased that I was able to find an eco-conscious mat that wasn’t a million dollars and still provided enough padding and stickiness to keep my flow on track!” – Annaiz

2. Plant Based Pea Protein Powder

Compared to animal or soy protein, pea protein has a much smaller environmental impact. It’s gluten-free, non-gmo and vegan friendly.

Eco-Friendly Gift Review: “This is perhaps the best pea protein I’ve used. And I’ve tried a lot. The taste is neutral, has an eco friendly container, and it’s made and packaged in the USA! For some reason my body absorbs the protein better than other pea protein brands. Not sure if its because of the fermentation or what. All I know I got some serious gains from this. So I bought it a second time! My only worry is the chance the cardboard container being damaged during shipping. Other than that I will continue buying this brand of pea protein.” – James

3. Eco-Friendly Yoga Pants

Eco-friendly yoga pants

Teeki is an active wear line that produces their clothes from recycled plastics and sustainable materials, all produced within the U.S. using solar-powered facilities. With each pair of pants you purchase Teeki recycles 18 to 30 water bottles!

Eco-Friendly Gifts Review: “I can’t express just how much I love these pants! I wear them for yoga and they’re ideal – they hide any inkling of sweat in the nether-regions, and they’re perfectly comfy and don’t budge. After time, the waist band became ever-so-slightly stretched but not in a way that became indecent or ruined the integrity of the pants. I have meaty thighs and an ample rear and size large fit me great! Plus, they’re eco-friendly – who doesn’t love that?!” – Melly

4. Eco-Friendly Gym Bottle

An eco-friendly gym bottle is the ideal gift for every water-conscious person – not only for the gym, but for all kinds of daily life activities.

Eco-Friendly Gifts Review: “I’m so happy I switched to this glass bottle from plastic bottles. For the longest time, I missed the taste of water from the bottle. Glass bottles do make water taste better unlike plastic. I picked Yuminous because it comes with a brush and the shape of the bottle makes it easy to clean. The bamboo lid also interests me. Going natural is the key. This bottle was a lifesaver when after a long whole day at the theme park this hot summer, I left it in the car, and I was so happy that I still had water to drink on my drive home, and the water was so refreshing without the taste of plastic. I felt safe drinking from it without worry of toxic chemical of warm plastic.” – Despina

5. La Sportiva Climbing Shoes

eco-friendly climbing shoes

Your favorite climber needs new shoes?

Amongst other things, La Sportiva has adopted the eco-sustainable certification ISO 14001, which guarantees the company’s commitment to reducing their environmental footprint and has led to the introduction of several solutions, such as a carbon active filter system, water based glues and the recycling of 50% of production waste.

Eco-Friendly Gifts Review: “I have a narrow foot and these fit expected. The craftsmanship and materials are worth the investment for a beginner at indoor or outdoor rock climbing. These shoes feel less bulky and are more comfortable than the typical rental shoe at a rock gym, especially if you need a narrower shoe.” –
Ryan P. Wilson

6. Manduka Cork Yoga Block

eco friendly cork yoga block

Intertwine practice and planet with a cork yoga block from Manduka – all their blocks are made from sustainable cork or 50% post-consumer recycled EVA foam.

Eco-Friendly Gifts review: “I love this block. Very solid and sturdy for half moon pose. It feels very stable and I feel confident leaning on it. Has a good substantial weight and doesn’t wobble like foam blocks. I highly recommend this product. By the way, it should be easy to clean with a disinfecting wipe (or spray with equal parts water and white vinegar with teaspoon of dish soap). Just make sure to let all sides air dry so it doesn’t stay moist at any time.” – Newportmom

7. Biodegradable Gym Towel

eco-friendly towel

This biodegradable towel helps to keep our oceans free of plastic particles.

Eco-Friendly Gifts Review: “I’m so excited to get this aqua color! I have been using facesoft towels for years now and swear by them. Not only do I bring one to yoga, but they’re great for spinning, tennis, the gym, and basically any activity you work up a sweat doing. I love it because it fits perfectly around your neck so you don’t have to carry it around, and it can also be used as a tool to help you get a deeper stretch in yoga if needed. They are super soft and absorbent as well, so I never feel gross wiping my face with it. And you can tell it’s high quality material which lets me know it will last for years. Definitely recommend if you’re an active person!” – Amazon Customer

My U-12 team has been using it for scrimmages and it’s really a high quality ball that “sticks” to the hardwoods real well during matches. It can take abuse in a gym environment as well without significant wear and tear.” – Amazon Customer

11. Klean Kanteen

Klean kanteen

One of the best accessories for the responsible tourist – a reusable water bottle to reduce single-use plastic consumption.

Eco-Friendly Gifts Review: “Love! Klean Kanteen are one of the only companies passing safe lead tests- definitely look into it if you are shopping for safe alternatives to plastic. Happy with the cap so far, the kids have managed not to make them leak yet. Don’t think I’d trust it upside down in a backpack though- get the screw top for that 😉 – Mary Clare

13. Bamboo Utensils

eco-friendly bamboo utensils

Bamboo utensils have the potential to truly revolutionize your travel experience – they are light and don’t take up much space, but you use them every day (instead of the single-use plastic versions).

Eco-Friendly Gift Review: “I was impressed with the quality of this set, as well as the carrying case that it came in. I purchased this for work, as I was interested in having a compact set that would be both eco-friendly and easy to clean. It worked well for my workplace, because here we hand wash everything, since there isn’t a dishwasher in the break room. Bamboo utensils aren’t dishwasher friendly, so that might impact some people, but for me it wasn’t an issue at all. I also liked the smooth surface of the utensils. Overall, a recommend if you are looking for something durable, portable, and friendly to the environment.” – Jason Smith

14. Portable Wash bag

portable washbag

Your own personal pocked-sized washing machine to bring along on your travels. It saves money, time and water!

Eco-Friendly Gifts Review: “We traveled a few weeks in Europe last summer and bought the Scrubba to help rotate our clothes. It was great. It holds an amazing amount of clothes. It can be a little messy until you get the hang of it. We washed at night and dried on a packable line during the night or the daytime if we had a balcony with a wall. We weren’t those travelers to hang out stuff outside. Only if it couldn’t be seen. It worked especially well for underclothing. It packs small and is lightweight. We used small one time use liquid detergent packs. This would also be quite helpful if you were camping or in a trailer for any length of time. NO regrets on this purchase.” – Amazon review

15. Cotton Laptop Bag

eco-friendly laptop bag

This handy laptop bag made from all-natural cotton canvas is the ideal gift for that one friend who never leaves the house without their laptop. It has lots of smaller compartments for pens, notebooks, IDs etc., which makes it easy to keep things organized.

Eco-Friendly Gift Review: “I usually don’t purchase things without checking them out beforehand. However, I was very surprised by how amazing this bag is! I managed to pack my (bulkier) MacBook Pro 17″, Kindle Paperwhite, chargers, 3 pairs of board shorts, 5 t-shirts, 7 pairs of socks, underwear, and a bag of medication. Even with all of those items inside, I was still able to make the bag mostly flat for travel on the plane. It will fit nicely under the seat or in the overhead compartments. One perk that might grab other people’s attention (I know it did with me) is that the clasps for the over-the-shoulder strap DO SWIVEL. This is something that has had me stay clear of most messenger bags in the past because they, for some odd reason, did not come with this function. All in all, I definitely say to grab this bag if you’re considering the purchase!” – Jason

16. Reusable Coffee Cup

eco-friendly coffee cup

Any coffee addicts out there? If you can’t start your day without a strong cup of coffee, make this reusable cup your best friend (or – if it’s a gift – your best friend’s best friend).

Eco-Friendly Gift Review: “I lost my reusable cup from Starbucks and wanted a replacement that was just like my old cup but that didn’t advertise Starbucks. The Panda Cup is just what I was looking for. Holds 16 oz without overflowing; the top is NOT screw on, which is good because those tops tend to cause problems over time; I love the look; the sleeve is a plus, as is the stirrer.” – Kitty

17. Carry-On Bag

carry-on bag

This carry-on made from cotton canvas is very sturdy and the perfect weekender travel bag.

Eco – Friendly Gift Review: “I love it! It’s very sturdy. The colors are great. It has a lot of room to pack for a long weekend. You can have the straps so it goes across your body or connected to each end to go over your shoulder. The shorter straps work better as handles and would not go over your shoulder. Inside is a zipper with pockets. I would recommend this bag!” – smun

I don’t usually jump for gizmos just for the sake of it but 8 did ask myself how could I live without these clever little zippery things before?

19. Steel Straws – $7,99

steel straws

Plastic straws are the devil, that’s not new. If you don’t want to stop using straws though, just get a set of steel straws. They are long-lasting and easy to clean and carry around.

Eco-Friendly Gifts Review: “The awareness of the dangers and waste of plastic straws in the environment is spreading. I bought these so I don’t contribute to that. DON’T buy steel straws without the silicone tops! They protect your lips from extreme temps. This set also includes a carrying bag. Stop using plastic straws and use these as an alternative! I gave some to kids and they love them! They are easy to carry in their backpacks and they won’t break or bend. Cleaning is easy! I highly recommend!!” – FL mom of 3

20. Turkish Travel Towel/Sarong/Scarf

beach towel and scarf

Make your holidays (or someone else’s holidays) perfect with this beautiful allrounder. It’s made from 100% cotton, highly absorbent, quick drying and easily washable.

Eco-Friendly Gift Review: “This is my first experience with a Wet Cat Turkish towel, but it won’t be my last! After carefully reading many reviews, I decided to try this towel and what a difference it makes! First of all, it is much more absorbent than any luxe cotton loop towels that I have tried and I have tried ALL the high end towels from Frette, Sferra, etc. Wet Cat is a completely different experience. The towel is extremely lightweight compared to the thick, heavy luxe towels but is much more absorbent. I don’t have to spend time “air drying” after using a Wet Cat and the towel itself air dries much more quickly after use. I was pleasantly impressed after the first use and will definitely order again.” – Sisu

21. Eco-Friendly Dry Bag

eco-friendly dry bag

This dry bag made of thick marine grade 5mm eco-friendly Vinyl Tarpaulin is the perfect present for everyone who enjoys diving, snorkeling, kayaking or any other water-related activities.

Eco-Friendly Gift Review: “I was kayaking, snorkelling, scuba diving, paddle boarding on an island for 10 days. The salt, the sun, the water and the harsh elements are absolutely no match for this product. I really treated this bag rough, it was filled my scuba gear, fins, towels first aid, phone wallet etc. Perfect companion for travel adventures. My one little gripe is that there is no compartmentalization in this bag. Just one big hole to dump all your stuff in. I would have like to have a little net or lining to hold essentials near the top of the bag.” – Anirudh

22. Bamboo Skateboard

Its endless renewability as a resource and it’s minimal effect on the environment makes bamboo the eco-friendly alternative to other most other materials. So, if you are looking to surprise that eco-conscious someone with a skateboard – look no further.

Eco-Friendly Gift Review: “I was hesitant to buy a bamboo board because I have been riding maple decks for the last 20 years but I can say now that I really like the way it feels. It does seem to have a little more “pop” than other decks I have ridden. It doesn’t feel soft at all and actually I think it feels a little stiffer than my last deck. It slides really well. The hardness of the bamboo make it slide really fast. I will be buying these from now on.” – Amazon Customer

Normally an athletic 39 coat size, M came in formfitting enough to wear with thermal and thick insulating layers without being bulky or overly compressed.

Used it at 11k feet for 3 days for 2 meals a day with no issues whatsoever. The blower really helps get things moving when at altitude, too. Size is manageable when transporting; weight isn’t too bad, especially considering you don’t have to lug fuel around everywhere you go. Keep in mind, it is a little top-heavy, so be sure you’re on a level surface. Also, don’t be in a rush to charge your device as it takes a little while to charge things up.” – Matt

Eco-Friendly Gift Review: “Not knowing what the colors would be felt like I was taking a bit of a gamble but seeing all the cool color schemes that Cotopaxi makes, I felt comfortable enough to do the del dia model. I got a really cool looking color scheme! I’m happy with it. The bag itself is super lightweight and I can tell it is very high quality from the stitching to the material. I am so impressed. This is the highest quality you can get for the price. It’s comfortable as well. Perfect for a day hike. I’m happy to own this one of a kind bag.” – Morgan

I will always buy ENO before any other brand because of the quality and ease of setup. The only thing that I noticed on this particular hammock was the color faded quickly (not as bright as when I first purchased). Other than that I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a hammock. I actually slept in mine for 5 days when we went camping. 10 times better than a cot in a tent.” – Richard Wilborn

40. Organic Body Lotion

eco-friendly body lotion

This body lotion with organic shea butter is not only dermatologist recommended and super smooth, it is also it’s vegan, cruelty Free, Fair Trade, and sustainably harvested in eco-reserves in Taiwan, protecting local habitat.

Eco-Friendly Gift Review: “My skin is in rough shape. I have very dry, eczema prone skin with patches that tend to break out with occasional acne, scar tissue formation, and rough calluses on elbows and feet. And I got so tired of using multiple skin care products that either barely helped or were way too expensive ($60 face creams, anyone?). So I researched different ingredients, tried out some raw shea butter and coconut oil to see how my skin would react to them, and put quite a few hours into searching for just the right product to meet my needs. This lotion isn’t a miracle cream, but with its affordability, pure ingredients, effective moisturizing, and all-over versatility it’s pretty close. I purchased the unscented version and it truly is without any scent, good or bad. It comes out thin like a lotion, which made me nervous at first, but goes on silky smooth like the thickest creams, yet without any sort of greasy residue. I’ve been using it all over (face and body) to the exclusion of any other moisturizing products, just to see what it could do – and I’ve gone from 6 containers on my countertop to just one, which is pretty amazing. No more dual face creams, body-only lotion, extra moisturizing treatment, cuticle cream, and callus cream! It’s gentle enough for sensitive areas like around the eyes, yet effective enough for tough areas like elbows and feet. It hasn’t completely reduced my calluses, but it’s certainly stopped them from getting worse. My cuticles and skin tone have improved, my acne has almost disappeared, and red eczema-prone patches have evened out. I live in a cold, dry, wintry climate . . . so that’s saying something! I love that it’s made of the purest and most natural ingredients, and have enjoyed learning more about the benefits of soapberries. I will definitely be buying more of this in the future!” – E.

41. Wooden Tricycle

eco-friendly gifts: tricycle

This award-winning tricycle is suitable for kids and toddlers (one-year-olds can start to ride). Kinderfeets cooperates with Trees For The Future, which means they plant one tree for every bike they sell.

Eco-Friendly Gift Review: “Our son got this as a gift for his 1st birthday. He just turned 2 and it’s still a great size bike for him. The seat isn’t even on the highest setting, so it’ll last him a while longer – hopefully until he turns 3. He’s in about the 60th percentile for height right now, so this should last most kids past 24 months even though it’s labeled 12-24 months. It’s made out of wood, so it’s not as durable as a metal bike. It’s gotten a few cracks in it, but it’s withstood being dropped and thrown to the ground quite a bit. A few times some of the screws have come loose and fallen out from my son banging the front wheel on the ground while riding, but otherwise it has held up pretty well.” – Brittany

44. The Organic Artist For Kids Book

The Organic Artist book

This great book inspires creativity by connecting kids and their adults to our wilderness roots. A highly recommended eco-friendly gift for the whole family, babysitters, and teachers!

Eco-Friendly Gift Review: “As an art educator and certified naturalist, I am always looking for ways to incorporate nature and environmental awareness into the art studio for my students. I first came to know Neddo’s work by way of the National Art Education Association’s yearly convention whereby one of the workshops I attended highlighted Neddo’s first book, The Organic Artist. From there, I designed a STREAM course for my middle schoolers, Art Lab, which incorporated many of the informative concepts and recipes for making natural art materials. However, I have to say that Neddo’s new book, The Organic Artist for Kids, is even more wonderful for those who want to bring nature inside or for those who practice making art outside. It is a perfect use alone or supplement to any earth science, art, or homeschool curriculum. His knowledge of materials is extensive. The easy to follow instructions are doable with the addition of common substances readily available. PLUS, Neddo is most aware of presenting non-toxic and earth friendly ideas for creating art. Painting and printing with beets is even edible! This book is a keeper and stands out in my library of eco-friendly art explorations.” – Nina

Eco-Friendly Gift Review: “Wonderful set of instruments! Great quality! I like that even the recorder is wooden, and it sounds lovely. We just got them, and my 15 month old loved trying them all. I’m working on creating a Montessori space for her, so I love that they are natural wood instead of distracting colors. I’m really excited to have some regular music-making time with her, and these are the perfect addition to her xylophone. Definitely recommend!” – Kungfubo

46. Children’s Dinnerware

eco-friendly dinner ware for children

This bamboo dinnerware set for boys and girls is renewable and sustainable.

Eco-Friendly Gift Review: “We’ve been using a Bobo&Boo bowl and plate for several weeks and liked them so much we bought more. We were seeking an alternative to silicone suction-base plates and bowls as our baby is getting old enough (13mos) to learn to use regular dishes. The sizing of both bowl and plate is perfect – small enough not to overwhelm our baby, yet big enough to fit a good amount of food. We haven’t used the fork and spoon as the handle shape isn’t the easiest for little hands/new eaters, but she may use them more as she gets better at handling cutlery. Likewise the cup is a bit big for our baby at the moment but we’ll save it for her to use as she grows. We run ours through the dishwasher (top rack) and so far they are holding up well. We love the vivid colors and smooth, durable-feeling finish. The packaging is easy to open and fully recyclable. Highly recommend!” – NW Gal

48. Wooden Solar Car Model Kits to Build

This science kit is ideal for children aged 8 to 12.  It’s a great parent-child building Physics project and puzzle all in one. The robot kit includes a solar panel that transforms heat into an electric energy drive motor, which teaches children the benefits of environmentally friendly solar energy.

Eco-Friendly Gift Review: “I loved it, my 4 year old loved it! Yes, she was too young to assemble the car, but I knew it before I made the purchase as this product is for 8+. Nevertheless, she enjoyed watching me do it and won’t put it down when we are out in the sun. I figured it is never too early to foster passion for STEM in kids. I loved everything about this toy. Instructions are easy to follow, design is cool and eco-friendly and most importantly, it actually works! It needs direct sunlight to turn the wheels and the brighter the sun the better. I noticed the car moves a lot faster around noon and slows down as the sun goes down. If you are looking for something that will teach and entertain your kids at the same time, this must be it!” – Nash Ashumov

Eco-Friendly Gifts Review: “I bought these pencils originally as a gift but after sharpening them, I ended up keeping them for myself. These pencils are circular in design, meaning once they are so small that you can no longer use them to write, they serve a new purpose as a plant. It’s a wonderful concept!” – Erica D. Medrano

vegan cookbook

This cookbook contains 550 healthy plant-based recipes to cook quick and easy meals.

Eco-Friendly Gift Review: “I got this (alongside another book) just for some new recipe inspiration for a bit of a lockdown health kick!! It’s easier to quickly flick through on paper to find something to eat instead of browsing online. The recipes are divided into different types and categories – including some innovative and different ideas. And while it’s unlikely I’ll ever go full veggie, at least this gives me a few options which I wouldn’t otherwise have thought about or considered.” – Jason

52. Wooden Cooking Utensils

Unlike silicone, wooden cooking utensils are free from chemicals. Woodenhouse kitchen utensils are made of one piece 100% Natural Teak Wood and will last you a lifetime.

Eco-Friendly Gift Review: “This set ALMOST looks too beautiful to use. The wood is gorgeous. And guess what? It’s still beautiful after several uses and hand washes. The tools fit comfortably in your hands and work with all kinds of food; including the messy stuff. I especially like that the set included a soup ladle and a slotted spoon. I was a little hesitant to spend this much money on a utensil set, but I am happy I splurged. After using the set for a week I threw all my other junk away. If you purchase this set you won’t want or need another. I also bought some food grade oil to keep my set looking beautiful. I consider this to be money very well spent.” – Big Momma

The sustainable food storage alternative: uniquely designed plastic free and eco-friendly reusable food wrap! It is made from organic cotton, infused with sustainably harvested beeswax, jojoba oil and tree resin.

Eco-Friendly Gift Review: “Can’t recommend these beeswax wraps enough. The antimicrobial aspect of the beeswax keeps fruits and vegetables super fresh for much longer than plastic bags. They keep bread soft and fresh for much longer than ziplocs. They are so much better for the environment, and they can be reused for months. We have been using our set for almost 2 years and they are still as good as new. No waste! Just make sure to wash them with cool water, as warm/hot water will melt the wax.” – Publisher

56. Natural Hemp Sponges

eco-friendly kitchen sponge

This natural hemp sponge for dish washing is a great eco-friendly gift for someone who is trying to reduce their waste. It is hand knitted from green organic materials and biodegradable. Plus. it comes in a reusable recycled paper box.

Eco-Friendly Gift Review: “I was looking into “low-waste”/ “zero-waste” options for hand dish washing, but I didn’t want to buy all the different brushes most blogs and posts talk about. These hemp scrubbers are biodegradable, natural, and wicked good quality! They are tightly woven, and can do the job of any conventional dish sponge. When food debris get in between the fibers, it easily rinses away with water. I have washed it in the laundry along with my towels, and it still keeps its shape. They will definitely last a long time, they are reusable after all! If you don’t mind washing dishes by hand and touching the water, give these a try! One possible flaw, my boyfriend tried them but he didn’t like how small they were. However, I don’t have any complaints about the size or how they feel. Using alternatives can be a learning curve, but trust me, some soap and warm water is all you need with these little guys and they’ll work like a charm.” – Alexis

57. Vegan Cookbook (For Busy People)

eco-friendly gift for busy people

This book is the perfect gift for all busy vegans.

Eco-Friendly Gift Review: “I follow Gaz on YouTube and everything he cooks I want to try seriously!! So when I heard he had a new book Plant’s Only Kitchen with simple, delicious healthy recipes, I knew I had to purchase. For starters the quality of the book is superb!! My brother saw the book and was skimming trough pages and asked was this book pricey because it’s looks like it was. When I told him the price he was shocked! I am thrilled with book and love the less than 15 min breakfast recipes. It contains a variety of recipes from curries, stews, soups and even delicious desserts all vegan recipes!! Also appreciate the icons next to each recipe so you know which recipes are Batch Cooking, Meal Prep, Gluten free, 15 min or One Pot Meal. The only thing I wish was different is the size of font I wear eyeglasses so bigger font would have been highly appreciated. Other than that I’m extremely happy with the book and will try to replicate as many recipes as I can. Highly recommend you purchase believe me you won’t regret it. I’m new to vegan eating but Gaz book makes it look simple, delicious and very colorful recipes packed with nutrients and flavors!” – Lizzie

58. Eco-Friendly Coffee Filters

eco-friendly coffee filters

Unbleached, compostable coffee filters are a must-have for all the coffee lovers amongst your friends and family members!

Eco-Friendly Gifts Review: “Every “If You Care” product I have used has been a good product. I am particularly keen on their parchment paper for baking. Unbleached, chlorine free, and better for the environment. As for this product, this is my second package of No 2 Coffee filters, 100 ct. I don’t go through them too often, but I use this size when I am brewing a cup of coffee using a collapsible single cup coffee maker (typically used for hotel stays and camping, but occasionally in house too). I think typical coffee makers use No 4. Grounds never seep through it, and my coffee always tastes great. I have no use for the typical white paper filters, and so I am happy to be able to buy this product here as well as in stores. I have zero complaints or concerns, so a full five star rating is warranted.” – Precise Disarray

An indoor composter is the ideal present for your home and the planet!

Eco-Friendly Gift Review: “This quaint little compost bucket looks great on my kitchen island, I love the charcoal lid which eliminates odors from the bucket allowing me to empty it every few days rather then every couple of hours. Removing the compost liner bucket to carry it out to the compost bin is easy, and it comes with a handle so even my work adverse children can’t complain about “hard labor”. The liner bucket (which actually holds the compost) is easily washed and dried and then put back into the attractive metal bucket. I would purchase again, and I may just do that if I build a compost bin for my seperated wife.. What we do for love…” – Kyuss

Written in a lively, easily accessible style, the photos and whimsical graphics make for an easy read that will no doubt stay close to the garden shed or patio. Shawna offers everything from container to design to growing “hacks” that are easy to follow and well illustrated. One of the best features of the paperback volume are placeholder flaps at both the front and back of the book, making it easy to find your place for a particular project you are working on. Everything from making “seed tape” out of toilet paper to repurposing trash bins and wine bottles into rain barrels and fun garden edging, it’s hard to imagine that any reader wouldn’t find at least a dozen hacks that will help in their own garden space. I’d be excited if Shawna and her publishers pursue an advanced garden hacks book for more advanced gardeners! Fingers crossed!” – E A. Larson

67. Solar Powered Garden Lights

Light up your backyard with solar powered garden lights – they charge 4-6 hours in direct sunlight and work automatically for up to 8 hours at night. 

Eco-Friendly Gift Review: ” I didn’t realize the shadow that these cast was a cool star shape, it’s actually very pretty. They are very well built with metal stakes and real glass. The solar panel is very large and really doesn’t need a lot of sun to illuminate. This was a concern for me because past lights didn’t absorb enough sun on overcast days and therefore wouldn’t light up. Granted, these are the first semi-expensive solar lights I have purchased, all lights prior have been cheap walmart garbage that doesn’t last. It’s a great value for what you get, I expects these to last years.” – Kristin

This mini portable greenhouse makes dreams come true. It is easy to set up, made from eco-friendly materials and protects plants effectively.

Eco-Friendly Gifts Review: “Beyond happy with the size and construction of this greenhouse. Assembly is quite simple, as the entire greenhouse is a well stitched together single piece, so it really is like a pop up tent that you just have to run two tentpoles through. Just make sure to run them through the beltloop in the center or you’ll have to redo it like I did (there are instructions, I just didn’t read them). It also happened to be almost the exact size of my raised bed veggie patch, so I was able to fit the entire structure over the bed which should really help with insulation. It also comes in a vinyl zip up bag and it collapses down well, so it should be easy to store during summer. Would highly recommend this piece if you’re looking to spend/get more out of a small hoophouse.” – Brent

71. GoPro

For the outdoorsy or tech savvy friends and family members – the GoPro is waterproof and takes high quality pictures and videos.

Eco-Friendly Gifts Review: “I got this for my son for his birthday because he wanted to become a YouTube star. Big dreams 🙂 but better than video games and gets his outside running around with friends making videos while they all play. Anyway I don’t think you need to spend more on the better ‘black’ model but be aware you need to spend more on a fast SD card as this doesn’t come with one. Video eats up space quickly go opt for a larger one than a smaller one. After some time I ended up needing to also buy my little movie director an external hard drive to put videos on as the limited storage in is PC was used up. And now he is looking to get some of the mounts for this cam and a selfie stick. Good camera just be aware there are other costs associated with the ‘hobby’.” – Autobahn97

This 30000mAh large-capacity power bank with solar panel can charge multiple devices simultaneously. It also includes a LED flashlight. A must-have for all outdoor lovers!

Eco-Friendly Gifts Review: “I bought this solar phone charger to use while camping in the winter time. It held up pretty well and kept my phone topped off throughout a 5day camping trip to the adirondacks. The rope and carabiner that they provide help in keeping it tied down to a bag for easy transport. For future enhancement of the product, I would recommend that the company comes up with a strap that attaches to both ends of the charger, that way it does not dangle all over the place when attached to a bookbag for instance. I don’t utilize the wireless charger often, but it definitely works. I just prefer the speed of charging through a cable. For a power bank that is 30k mAh, this charger is quite lighter than other ones ive seen my friends sport. So when weight is an issue while backpacking, this one holds up very well.” – Milo

I was skeptical that this comforter would work for us, but after our first night using it, we are more than satisfied. He said it was the best night of sleep he’s had in a long time. By looking at it, you can hardly tell the difference in the two sides, but there is definitely a big difference in warmth. The fabric is so soft and feels cool. In my opinion, it feels better than many of the incredibly expensive ($300+) comforters we saw at the store. I put mine in a marble print duvet cover and it looks great on our bed.
